The Building Division supports construction permitting functions at the Permit Center, including public information, application review and acceptance, routing, fee collection, and issuance of all permit applications. This program manages the review of plans for work being performed within city limits to ensure compliance with required standards and regulations. The program also provides daily inspections of construction, plumbing, electrical, and mechanical work at job sites to ensure all work conforms to current code requirements.
The building inspectors are only in the office to schedule inspections between 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., Monday through Thursday.
To schedule an inspection, please call (510) 747-6830 at least two days in advance of your desired inspection date.
